The Storm Prediction Center has put our area in the ‘marginal’ category for severe storms. Right now the only dynamic that could cause any kind of severe thunderstorm would be gusty winds. We will see gusts of 25 mph, but with thunderstorms there a slight chance of seeing winds increase past 50 mph.
